DIABETIC RETINOPATHY

Diabetes is the main factor behind loss of vision in adults between the age of 18 and 64. Moreover, there are no overt symptoms or indicators. But diabetes-related vision loss can be prevented in 95% of cases with an annual eye checkup. Diabetes has the potential to harm the small blood vessels of the retina which is a light-sensitive tissue in the back wall of the eye.

The symptoms of diabetic retinopathy include:

  • Hazy or unclear vision
  • Nighttime vision problems
  • Seeing double
  • just one eye’s vision is blurry
  • Redness or discomfort in your eye
  • seeing dots or floaters
  • diminished peripheral vision.

It is crucial for diabetics to get their eye tests done at least once a year. Maintaining a healthy weight, eating well, and taking medication while managing diabetes can also help to delay or avoid vision loss.
